One highlight of the wedding was Gordo, the couple’s cute dog. He walked down the aisle along with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
Following the wedding ceremony, guests proceeded to the Calle Independencia for the wedding reception catered by Main Street Catering. The three tier cake was created by Donna Joy, Sedona Sweet Arts .
Mario Libunao played a large variety of music for Audra and Bryce and their guests. Everyone had a great time and greatly enjoyed the reception.
Debra White and Marc Fraley got married in the Tlaquepaque Chapel on Saturday night, July 25th. The intimate wedding was photographed by Greg Reiter. Debra wore a lovely extravagant wedding gown with an amazing train.
On Sunday, July 26th, we were excited to host the wedding ceremony of Abigail Shimko and Travis Fowler. Bonnie, Abigail’s mother, helped plan the intimate wedding ceremony in the Tlaquepaque Chapel. Their professional photographer was Ron and Jenni Goldman of Jenni Goldman Photography , a Tlaquepaque favorite.
The very personal ceremony was performed by their brother-in-law Rev. Reggie Rice and music was performed by Carla and David. Family and friends help decorate the Tlaquepaque Chapel and Abigail and Travis lit a lovely unity candle during the ceremony.
Following the wedding ceremony, guests accompanied Abigail and Travis to the Fireside room at Heartline Cafe for their wedding reception. We are so happy for Abigail and Travis and wish them only the best for their future.
There’s nothing quite like falling head over heels in love. Sometimes that love is so strong you just want to run off and get married immediately. Eloping can be crazy and romantic, but there’s still some planning that needs to happen. Yes, it’s true! If you ever considered a destination for your elopement, consider Tlaquepaque’s Chapel in Sedona, Arizona.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to weddings from ceremonies to receptions more and more brides and grooms are personalizing their weddings. Today’s couples are mixing old with the new for ways to make their wedding stand out from the rest. Make your wedding day as special and unforgettable as you both are and put your imagination to good use. Marriage is about two unique individuals coming together as one, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box.
Tlaquepaque has had great brides and grooms with amazing ideas, from dessert bars to candy stations. Ideas range from placing a romantic seating area for the bride and groom to relax and enjoy their evening and guests. You can take it a step further and incorporate sofas and coffee tables to break up a traditional wedding reception set up.
Another great idea so as to not keep your guests waiting taking photos is a First Look. About 70% of couples opt to have a first look before their ceremony. This is where they can capture that special moment and take a minute to breathe and shake off some of that anxiety that has been brewing all day. Some of our photographers have captured some great moments.
We hope you enjoy these ideas and photos.
Guest books have come a long way….
Do something unique and different besides having the boring old paper guest book. Be creative and make “Your Wedding You ” and I think the guest book is a great place to show your personality and have a little fun.
There are so many ideas out there. One if the more popular ideas is using the game Jenga. Using the fun game of Jenga turns blocks into a guest signing success.
You could stack the pieces and have your guests remove their own block and write a message or you could put the pieces into a container of your choice.
There are many ways to create your display, so remember to have fun with it and make it your own. Don’t forget a catchy sign.
Every time you play the game, it will bring back all the memories of your special day for years to come.
